The best black dress I own (and I have a LOT)!
I'm not normally one to write reviews, but I want to shout out loud about how fabulous this dress is. I wore it for the first time with a bra, as I didn't quite feel ready to go without, although I absolutely could have. I sized down and ordered a large (I'm normally a UK size 20/22), and it is perfect. I'm 5"6 and the length is below my knees which I love. The dress is great quality, it felt swishy, and the pockets are brill- deep and secure enough for me to keep my phone in during a gig. Best of all, I felt genuinely amazing wearing it! It's definitely an investment piece, but so worth it.
I really really love it! It gives confidence aaaand pockets! Well done! ;) If i didn't have to pay so much costum charges I would come back for more and more and more!
I've never imagined walking around my local town in a spaghetti strap dress, wearing no bra, and feeling amazing! I have large, wide, low set boobs that can tend to mono-boob uncomfortably in crop tops and bralettes that don't have separate cups. But I felt great, boobs not overly squished together, lifted enough to look cute, and the cut of the dress smoothed the lovely fabric over my tummy and hips. I want to wear it all the time! I wore it all day without rushing to undress and get into loungewear as soon as I got home.
I'm 5'2" and around a size 18, maybe 16 in some brands. I got the medium petit, which was still a proper midi length on me, and I think fit well the pockets sit a little lower in the waist than I'd like, but they are massive and don't spoil the line of the dress so that's fine. I'd say the regular would be like a maxi length for shorties, and the pockets would be way too low.
My favourite manners dress, and that’s really saying something as i have so many! Incredibly versatile, comfortable and classic. Mine has been to festivals, splashed about in rivers, hiked up hills, and been out for cocktails. Washes beautifully too. Definitely size down - I’m usually a L in manners but the M is perfect. I’m 5’3 and the petit fit is just below the knee on me.
Please make some more colours! A green, a blue, a red - i will buy them all!
I honestly was surprised at how much I loved this dress, fit like a glove, so comfy, POCKETS, and on my first wear alone had soooo many compliments. And of course my dream, no bra - complete all rounder and I’m sure I’ll be living in it all summer- have already bought the jola short version and can’t wait for the green to be released. For sizing, I’m usually a 12/14 on top, 16 bottom, so the Medium was perfect!
